Founded in 1904, Bath Society of Artists has showcased the work of artists such as Walter Sickert and John Singer Sargent. It is an active society that continues to expand and diversify with award-winning member artists working in a broad range of media and artistic styles. This includes its popular annual members’ exhibition, which this year takes its lead from The Badminton Game, a painting by its current president David Inshaw RWA. Source explores the materials and ideas artists draw upon as inspiration for their work and will exhibit members’ developmental materials along with final works created from these sources. With a curatorial contribution by Katie O’Brien, director of 44AD, an award-winning gallery and artspace located in the heart of the city, Source offers the visitor a fascinating insight into what inspires artists, the artistic process and its varied and contrasting artistic outcomes. Private view on Friday 19 October, 6–9pm. Follow @bathsocietyofartists on Instagram.
